Hi everyone, we are the Widezki Family from Israel and we are proud to introduce you all to our daughter Noy who celebrated her BAT MITZVA on February 13, 2015.

All of you know that children’s birth is an exciting event.

All children land on their parents happily even if those moments involved concerns and excitement. But Noy came with a big drama, and we were young parents, without realizing that we would be forced to make difficult decisions.

Noy born on February 9th, 2003 and was diagnosed as MSUD classic in 14 days.

After 4 days in PICU we were told that Noy has MSUD and she must have Hemo-Dialysis as all her body was already toxic with leucine levels of 2,340mg!!!!

Today, we all know that we have chosen this gamble right for us and for Noy.

We chose to raise this special girl, as a normal child, of course with food restrictions however we never prevented her from experiencing flavors. I remember strongly when we participated in our first symposium in Atlanta 2004 and we asked some families “tell us what is the daily menu of your children?”, Most of them answered: “Potato chips and all forms of potatos”.

Without press and cameras we ran this marathon race without breaks, and some falls when we went to the hospital, but we always get up and keep running. Noy has grown to be a girl called wise and determined that nothing stands in her way. She knew from a young age always to get up and to move on.

Life is not easy for her but absolutely possible.

Our mission to all of the MSUD families is to show that MSUD can be managed.


The MSUD Family Support Group is currently funding several research projects and we are proactively looking for researchers interested in developing new treatments or finding a cure for MSUD. Significant funding is necessary if we are to accomplish this goal.
